I was working on hauling the trash out when a young man rang my doorbell. He introduced himself by saying “Hi, I’m from the Democratic National Committee and we’re working to get George Bush out of the White House.”

I was taken a bit off-balance (I was hoping for the FedEx delivery guy), so I just said “I don’t think you should be talking to me, then.” He politely wished me a nice day and moved off. In retrospect, though, I missed an opportunity. If another one comes around I think I’ll ask him for his pitch; it’ll be interesting to see what the answer is. Technically at the moment I’m a Bush-leaning Democrat, which I guess makes me a swing voter, so I should give the DNC a chance to state their case. Also, I’m curious as to why DNC operatives are working my neighborhood in California. This should be a pretty safe state for Kerry, so why spend the resources?

(It might have been more interesting had he come around tomorrow. Given the state of my “to wear” clothing pile, I’d give about 50% odds that I would have been wearing a T-shirt with this on the front. That would have made for an interesting reaction, methinks.)
